This house sits alongside Millman Swing Bridge with a long offside edge adjoining the Leeds and Liverpool canal. The property was built about 1812 and has many fascinating period details. It is believed to have been an overseers house for the mills in the area. On the ground floor of the house there is an entrance hall, a sitting room, a second reception room, a kitchen, a utility room, and a storage room. Upstairs are three good sized bedrooms, a box room or office, and a bathroom. The property sits in extensive grounds running parallel to the canal. To the rear there is a lawned garden, with driveway parking and a garage to the front. There are numerous outbuildings and of course the kennels, with space for over 100 animals. The gardens and kennels are at a significantly higher level than the canal, making it difficult to create moorings, but there may be some potential to develop the bank, subject to permission.
